The Wellcome Trust invites applications for its seed awards in humanities and social science. These enable researchers to develop a novel idea to a position where they could compete for a larger award from the trust or another funder.
Research may fall under any field of humanities and social science that enriches the understanding of human and animal health. Eligible activities include pilot and scoping studies, planning sessions and meetings of collaborative networks.
Awards typically range from £25,000 to £50,000 over six to 12 months. Funding may be used towards research expenses, research leave or teaching buy-out, employment of a researcher or consultant, the costs of convening a meeting or seminar, or supporting dissemination activities for research funded on the grant.
The deadline for applications is 15 Jan 2016.
